NH man charged with taking funeral GoFundMe money to buy car

By AP

CONCORD, N.H. — Police have accused a New Hampshire man of taking money from a GoFundMe account to pay for funeral expenses for a woman who was killed and using it to buy a car.

Concord police said the fund was set up in June by 25-year-old Jeffrey Grenier, of Manchester, following the stabbing death of Sabrina Galusha. A man awaits trial on first-degree murder.

Police said several thousand dollars was raised. Grenier and the Galusha family communicated; it was the family’s understanding that the funds would be transferred to them. But by June 30, the family told police they never received the money.

Police discovered the money was deposited in Grenier’s bank account and that he used some to buy the car. He was jailed Wednesday on a theft charge. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
